Ukrainian trucking permits to Poland are to drop by 20% next year, to 160,000, reports the Logistics Committee of European Business Association. An equal number is given to Polish truckers. But Polish trucking companies do not use most of them, due to long waits at the border and higher wages for Polish truck drivers. With EU trade growing and rail freight slow and expensive, Ukraine-based manufacturers predict a serious trade bottleneck in 2019. Poland is the port of entry for more truck traffic to the EU.
